Glidecam 4000 Pro with Z1U

Okay, I know how difficult it is to balance one of these things, so I thought I'd start out by asking those who have already successfully balanced their Z1U with this thing. No manual came with this and the DVD Promo is a joke. So, any specifics people can provide me? I plan on using a quick release, but where is the best place to put it on the plate? I plan on using my sony wide angle lens which will add some weight. I may or may not use an onboard external mic (I have a Sennheiser ME66). How many weights you use for each side? Too many questions??? Thanks to anyone who can give me a bit of a head start! (Also, I have the Glidecam body pod/harness for attaching if that makes any difference)
